An award-winning church!

We were proud to win the Willliam Stansell Somerset Historic Buildings Award 2016 for the category of restoration and conservation.  The Award is presented by the Somerset Building Preservation Trust every other year.

 

In making the award, the judges found that "The work involved the repair of the roof, stonework and leaded light windows of this medieval and mid-nineteenth century parish church.  It is an exemplary project both for the support and fund raising from the Parochial Church Council and in the light-touch, well crafted repairs.  the opportunity was taken to reinstate the original patterned rooof tiling and to introduce roof insulation which hugely improves the internal environment.  The careful repairs to the glass and the restoration of the 1930s electric fittings complete a perfect project."

 

Designer: Philip Hughes Associates, Wincanton

Contractor: T. A. Green Builder, Wincanton

Specialist contractors: Salisbury Cathedral Stained Glass, Salisbury (glazing repairs and cleaning); Humphries & Jones, Crewkerne (light fitting refurbishment)
